DECISIVE BATTLE NEEDED
The war does not convey the idea of
the immediate restoration of peaee
not until after there has been some
decisive battle- K?V?IIK to one Ride or thc
other a complete mastery of the situ
ation. True, the German army failed
in its attempt to rush like an ava
lanche upon i'nrls, because its plans
were frustrated in the initial move
by thc brilliant fighting and ?killed
tad- s of the BclgiatiB.
Hut tho German army ls merely
frustrated, not defeated. The issues
involved in this great battle seem to
require a decisive battle. The Ger
man army ls a magnificent organiza
tions, is determined and is brave. Up
on its own territory the German army
may present an entirely different kind
of fightiiiK from thal which it bus
shown on the offensive in the ap
proach to I'aris. The battle toward
which the tremendous armies are con
verging may therefore be thc most re
markable and the most momentous
In tho whole history of the world.
It ls now likely that the Germans
ultimately will suffer defeat, nnd
those who knew the real heart and
soul of the German people will re
gret that a mad emperor has rushed
into a war of such bloody consequen
ces, of such sorrow laden conflicts.
'Hie great issue to be settled In this
war >et may be not which nation shall
be considered superior, but what shall
be the fate of the dynasties?
Is this war the making of tho peo
ple? Will the powerB which may tri

A more cessation of the lighting,

mean lasting peace. A truce for thc

What the world needs I.? a deep and
abiding peace. A peace that will
spread contentment all over Europe
and assure ?ach nation or each repub

It may be that no arbitration ex
cept that of tho viyonet will bring
these stiff-neck d n tlons lo an ap

The realization that tbs rights of .the
people rather than tue privileges and
pride of the crown are inevitably In
volved in this truggle will be the only
thing to cause a satisfactory termina
tion of the war.'
The serried hosts aro raanouevcring
for position. The embattled legions
aro taking their stand. Myriads of
arms are tented upon walting fields,
and it may be but a few days before
there will bo s'ruck a blow whose

his name with Oie smartest pages In
the history of the turf. The romantic
career of this man points to but one
He lived to be something "ke S5
years old, and was not a happy man,
although he had achieved success in
numerous ways-as the world looks
upon success. His father waa a Ken

became the owner of minea fron.

He then yielded to the appeal of the
soil, an appeal which, ? (mies to every
man during his lifetime, ?nil acquired
a ranch which was UH large as the
stute of Rhode Island. It was Haggin
who established the rigid of Irrigation
and made the Joaquin Valley the eden

Haggin raised the largest crop of
hop* In the world and the largest
flock of sheep in America and then
turned his eyes to his native Blue
G russ Btate. He purchased 10.000 acres
and became the. largest land owner in
the stato of Kentucky, and owned
three times as many ruce horscB as
any other man. Many fnmous race
horses have passed through his pad

(JET RID OF YOUR PERTS
If there were no debts there would
be no problems, war or no war.
It is debt and the lack of means
wherewith to meet the obligations
that embarasses the South today.
Unless debts be paid, credit will
suffer. Tho credit of the South has
been good and the South ha - not fail
ed to accept credit,
Thc Ns nt advice that we can offer
ls for ?vety person to commence pay
ing .trills. How can future credit be
obtained without a basis, a record of
promptness and ?pliability? To d'":
charge debts now ls ?o establish a '.nu
ls for future credits.
Stagnation Is what burt?. The as
sets arc here, the credit has been en
joyed. Let every man who can do so,
begin to discharge his obligations, for
upon his obligation are pledged the
faith and credit of others, and so on
in an endless chain.
When you get a little money, put
it in tho bank and check it out if nec
essary, but keep lt circulating. Thc
banks do not object to being annoyed
with small accounts and small checks.
What they need 1B to have the money
circulating so that it may show on
their books and strengthen the city's
reputation and basis for credit.
